Diary logs Coast's art and soul

THE hard work of talented Fraser Coast artists is behind the creation of the Hervey Bay Arts Council's perpetual diary.

The diary is undated to allow for unstructured use and is currently available at the Tourist Information Centre in Hervey Bay.

It contains snippets of information past and present, poetry, prose and artworks depicting life on the Fraser Coast.

Hervey Bay Arts Council president Kerrie Marshall is excited and relieved to have the diary printed and ready to sell after actively working on it for more than four years.

“At times it could have ended a few good friendships,” she joked.

“We're so proud to have it printed and ready for sale.”

The diary, named Jewels of the Bay, ventures into the artistic soul of the Fraser Coast, exhibiting local recipes, literature and art conforming with a local theme.

Hervey Bay Arts Council vice- president Lynn Harris said the final outcome would not have been possible without dedicated arts council members.

“Everyone has played their part and the diary is something we can all be extremely proud of,” she said.

“We are hoping that the diary will be valued as a slice of the Fraser Coast.”

Hervey Bay Arts Council is looking for businesses on the Fraser Coast who may be interested in selling the diary.
